Why is "Bjørnen skriver et langt kærlighedsbrev til pigen, fordi den synes AT hun er så smuk." wrong?

Yes, as far as I understand, the usage of at with synes is optional; it can be ommitted. But it should be correct when it is not ommited. So it should be accepted.

I have checked many sentences given by Duolingo, here are two of them: One with at and the other without at, when the synes structure is before a whole sentence:

Does anyone know for sure?

"langtkærlighedsbrev" - I created a new compound word, but am simply told "You missed a space."
